Yeah, like Eric said, I think that this is a csh problem rather than a
coreutils problem. I would even think that csh is behaving wrongly
here - rather than refusing to run rm because the glob didn't match,
it should pass the f* straight through to rm to deal with as it
pleases, unless you explicitly told the shell to fail (as Eric did in
his example). I don't have any standards to back that up though, Eric
is the POSIX-citing guy around here :)

Any standards for that Eric?
